What are you watching from before the year 2000 /a/?
The artwork in this show is just amazing.
>What are you watching from before the year 2000 /a/?
Just some Heidi.
Goddamnit, I'm in episode 15 or so and Clara still hasn't appeared.
Guess she only appears after the Frankfurt arc starts
It's a good show that ends on a strong note with a Nene episode, stick with it anon.
Priss and Nene are both my favourites and both are so deliciously hot too.
Trigun was a good show but they rushed a lot of the manga. I wouldn't mind it if they gave it the Hellsing Ultimate treatment.
Got about 15 episodes left of Rose of Versailles to go. I will watch eight episodes tonight and then the other 7 tomorrow I have been busy lately so I haven't been able to watch much. Fucking Andre man! How DARE he do that to poor Oscar.
Next choices for retro shows I watch, anons decide:
Aim for the Ace!
Ashita no Joe
Super Dimensional Fortress Macross
Gundam the 08th Team
Space Battleship Yamato
Watch Saber Rider
Currently watching Nadesico. It's great. I'm glad /a/ discussed it.
It had the weirdest recap episode I've seen in a long time, but I'm betting it'll make sense before the end of the series.
Watched this special the other night. Mind control shortcuts man, why do we need them in Lupin.
>ends on a strong note
The last episode was good but it didn't even finish it's initial planned run because AIC and Youmex had a falling out.
Bubblegum Crash kinda wraps it up.
Despite it's lack of an ending Crisis is still one of my favorite shows ever.
Me and a bro are watching Hokuto no Ken and Dirty pair right now. I think we decided on adding Cobra to the list.
>our faces when we decided
I forgot they planned on making more Bubblegum but then it got cancelled. So yeah, forget how I said it ends on a strong note but it does end with a decent episode focused on Nene.
I think that if they remade the show that today's animation just wouldn't do it absolute justice since a lot of the charm is in the 80s hand drawn style. Having it be computer generated would make the characters and everything else look ugly. I can imagine the Boomer ripping their skins off would look shit.
How is Crash? I have heard it's awful in every sense imaginable and the newer designs are a bit of an insult but it's only a couple episodes so I might just finish it off over the week sometime.
Kimagure Orange Road
Project A Ko
Sometimes I feel like I'm missing out because I don't ride the seasonal hype train. But I just love older anime so much more.
Crash isn't awful but it's not as great as the original.
Crisis has that gritty dark violent goodness that epitomize ovas from the 80s. They just had a certain magic to them.
I agree, if they remade it there would be bullshit CG everywhere.
There was also a t.v. version called bubblegum crisis 2040, that was OK. If you don't compare it to the ova. The character designs and suit designs are quite different and they even get upgraded suits later that are just for more fanservice.
At the end of the day, you just can't beat the level of detail that went into 80s ovas.
the girls were so sexy in episode 8
Recently finished Record of Lodoss War. It was okay, a bit boring. Not currently warching anything old, but started on Kimagure Orange Road a long time ago any maybe watch one episode every second month.
Lodoss' budget suffered tremendously as the series went on unfortunately.
At least we got to see deedo's tits at the end.
Watch the t.v. show. It's got a time jump and new characters but it's actually pretty good.
You are the only person I have seen that liked the TV series. I thought it was shit compared to the OVA's, but then the TV series is supposed to be more faithful to the author's story
Well clearly they meant On?-sama, which is an acceptable way to romanize a long vowel in Japanese, even though I personally prefer just typing out another letter since that's how you do it in kana.
Still watching Sailor Moon and Initial D.
Up to Sailor Mars' introduction and the end of AE86 vs. R32 respectively.
It wasn't the animation that was the problem, the animation was fine and actually pretty good. My biggest problem with it was poor pacing, uninteresting plot and boring characters.
I really wanted to watch the 1972 the 1969 Moomin anime that pissed off the original creator, but I couldn't find translated versions anywhere. Going to settle for rewatching the 1990 one.
I'm watching Patlabor and Rayearth right now.
Patlabor's fun, but not what I expected at all. Rayearth I enjoyed tremendously in the first half, came to grinding halt for me in the second half, which is why I started watching Patlabor instead.
When I was small kid I had watched anime before I understand what anime is.
One of my old favorite is possibly Starzinger and Cobra.
I just finished the entirety of Patlabor, I've never had so much goddamn fun with a show before. Also, the AV-98 Ingram is MOAT
I love Patlabor a lot, I wish someone would start translating the manga.
Recently finished the OVA's and films. Moving onto the series as soon as my bandwidth resets.
I love this franchise.
I wouldn't mind some subs for TNG myself, currently we only have them for what's essentially a teaser episode. At least that means we got a nice little update on where the original crew is at in the future year 2008,
including this rather unexpected but welcome detail.
Don't forget the second OVA series after the show, they polish off some minor hanging threads as well as provide some really great character stuff on top of the normal Patlabor silliness.
I'll be honest, I enjoyed the first movie a lot more than the second. Patlabor 2 is a great movie, but it took itself far too seriously. I know that one of the strengths of the IP is its versatility when it comes to tone, but I feel that 2 went a little too hard on the seriousness.
Tomino's a hack. I mean, he has great ideas but his skills as a director have always been lacking. The world of Byston Well is one of his very best ideas too, so it's kind of a shame.
It's a damn shame that no one has bothered to pick it up again. It has some nice art too. I would translate but I don't think my knowledge of moon is good enough yet to release translations.
Recently finished watching through the Green Jacket Lupin III anime, and been watching a few of the specials and movies here and there.
Also watched Gunbuster/Aim for the Top! the other day. That was fantastic. Especially loved the time dilation stuff. Then I watched its sequel Diebuster, and eh, it was only okay. Would have been better with no connection to Gunbuster at all.
Today I rewatched Kiki's Delivery Service, because it's been 25 years since it came out. Planning to start Patlabor soon. Do I need to start with the first OVA series, or can I just jump straight into the movies? Because I can't seem to find subbed downloads of the OVAs.
I'm nearing the end of Urusei Yatsura. It's been a fun ride, I'm not sure what I'll watch next though.
I'm about 5 episodes into Crest of the Stars, and I'm enjoying it
Anyone else seen it?
Holy fucking lines.
>mfw that half way point flashback episode
Shit was deep man.
I'm working on another one of Dezaki's classics, Takarajima. I'm planning on marathoning the last 10 episodes tonight. For someone that's never read Treasure Island, I was really surprised by how grim the series got once Silver betrayed them.
Oh, and like Cobra, Takajima has some really great art.
Oh, and I also watched My Neighbors the Yamadas last night. Really sweet movie.
You should read it, it's a good book, I read it like 100 times as a kid.
That scene where Silver and Jim go hunt for the swordfish is one of my favorite Dezaki moments, I love how crazy Silver is among his father figure characters.
Watching Touch and Maison Ikkoku now. I want to check out more 80's stuff, the only other show I've seen from back then was LoGH.
Touch is real good, I really like the Tatsuya's growth over the course of the series.
Maison Ikkoku is ok so far, on like episode 36. Does Godai-kun develop later on? Pretty fun otherwise.
I'll check it out, Cobra just blows me away with the animation quality, it's not what you would expect out of the early 80s.
>Knights of the Zodiac
>Dub produced by DIC Entertainment
>Is the dub for this good?
Why is this even a question? Also-
Guys i think i am gay for this glorious bastard.
I have just started watching Ashita no Joe... 3rd episode in. So far he is such a dick.
He'll love your hottest female relative back.
Is Cobra the 80s cyberpunk testosteronefest I imagine it to be? I love shit like Fist of the North Star and Golgo 13 so it down my alley
Watched this today.
Any good? AnimeLtd. announced they're releasing a BD/DVD combo pack a lá their Perfec t Blue collection so I'm waiting for that to come out
Hinted at a possible theatrical run too which would be sweet
I always think of Rubinsky when I hear him.
My dad only introduced me to
vidya, but then he stopped playing when he gave be the NES ;_;
Finished Tank Police.
>tfw you will never torture thugs for laughs and ride around on tanks with your bros while stealing and destroying whatever the fuck you want
Im finally finishing LOGH. This show is truly awesome despite most of the deaths are announced 3-4 episodes before.
>Lupin III first series
My absolute nigga. I'm watching the Shin Lupin series right now. It's got 155 episodes and I'm currently on 70.
I've also been watching the films and specials. I personally really enjoyed Bye Bye Lady Liberty! and Blood Seal Eternal Mermaid. I recommend them. As far as the theatrical films go, The Mystery of Momo was nice. I was surprised that I found myself enjoying the Detective Conan VS Lupin III film too.
I'm patiently awaiting for this to be subbed. I wouldn't mind checking out a dub by Funi either.
It's truly a lovely ride. I'm hoping the new adaptation makes enough interest to finally get a domestic release of the original series. It would be a perfect Aniplex release.
Like most old things, it's on bakabt. Amazing how many old properties get abandoned or not even brought over in the US.
No problem, you'll find most of the old releases you're looking for on there, though they didn't have the latest Lodoss BD release on there which surprised me.
It's an amazing quality increase from the release I had previously, jesus.
i dont watch the previews, but for example with Yang death (82), the episodes 80, 81 were filled with "This was the last time Julian saw Yang" "This is the last tea for Yang" "If Kircheis were alive this wont be the last trip for Yang Wenli" etc etc
OVA, I don't know is the TV series got a BD release.
It's just so much nicer.
Damn fine choice.
What do you mean by cool?
When making an AMV/MAD, always try to use a song from the show. Like try really, really, hard to use a song from the show.
Use a song from the show.
That's stupid. You should never try to limit yourself to just what the show gives you.
Just never use Linkin Park. Unless you're a tumblr cunt. In which case, get the fuck out and stay out.
I think HnK is still more man a series than Cobra. Cobra ran away/gave up before the first episode.
Nothing in Cobra that mirrors Yuria/Kenshiro relationship either.
I have Nakama's re-release mostly because I was running out of space when I downloaded it and it seemed perfect. It's on my external so I can't show you the quality but it's pretty good.
It was a point that you don't have to limit yourself to fuckawful J-pop songs. Like your video. Five Star Stories is enjoyable and the music is fine on its own. But that video did a horrible job matching the tone of the visuals to the tone of the song. It's just a mess of random clips with music played over them.
I know you just want to be a buttmad contrarian, so I won't post any more, but the Tutu AMV has long been held in high regard and I can say, even though it's not a massive technical achievement, it still shows much more work, direction and connectivity between audio and visuals than the mess you posted.
>watching Akira on youtube
Why would anybody do this.
I'm looking for more stuff with art style ala Cyborg 009
reading. but whatever
>you will never grow up in Japan at the time these were first airing
I would rather grow up at a time where I have the internet and immediate access to all those shows than having to catch episodes one by one as they air and paying to see OVA's and movies
>you are living in the time when they're being picked up and remastered in the highest possible quality viewable.
>wanting to live in Japan
I love anime, but would never want to live in Japan. There's a reason those people have a very high suicide rate combined with a very low total fertility rate.
It's fucking awesome, isn't it?
While that would be shit for the most part, I'd fucking love to have had a collection of Patlabor toys back then. How they managed to make a toy line featuring the AV-98 Ingram flop, I will never understand.
Not to mention given the strict, rigid, and hardcore schooling regime, it is very unlikely anyone living in the '80s and '90s would have been able to see a lot of anime as it aired as often as we do now
That's some lewd and beautiful animation Anon-kun.
The first one was too, if of a different visual style.
You want some lewd Patlabor? In Patlabor TNG, even the subs and characters that never feature onscreen are lewd, in fact it even retroactively makes more of Patlabor 2 lewd >>111310563
>not bowing to your cute space elf overlords
I really need to read the books
>people actually think 2199 is better than the original Yamato
I honestly haven't see the original yet, but I loved 2199.
Really can't go wrong there, how far in are you?
It's one of those shows that takes a little to pick up all the way, but once it does it never really lets up. I think around 20th episode or so shit really starts to hit the fan.
I had no idea really, I didn't really get how he got into power, did he take it? Or does some sort of military council vote him in?
>I had no idea really, I didn't really get how he got into power, did he take it? Or does some sort of military council vote him in?
In 2199 there's clearly a sort of division between military and his position in that he's voted in by the people or something like that, he was seen trying to rally public support with that speech.
In the original it doesn't actually matter how he came into power, just that he is. He needs only act as the definitive antagonistic force for the Yamato, a God playing with a toy and seeing how well it holds up to certain situations. His position here somewhat mirrors Queen Rafflesia in Harlock.
>a God playing with a toy and seeing how well it holds up to certain situations
That's actually pretty horrifying.
